APOSTOLIC CHRISTIAN WORLD RELIEF

Humanitarian Aid to the World

Apostolic Christian World Relief began in the early 1960's as the Apostolic Christian Churches of America sought to further the relief of human suffering around the world to fulfill the call of Christ. The ACWR has no paid staff and relies solely on volunteers, allowing 100% of its contributions to go toward their cause. Its mission is to provide humanitarian aid and volunteer labor to alleviate human misery and suffering throughout the world in a way that is a Christian witness and brings glory to God. They seek to serve God by sharing their resources and abilities to benefit both the body and soul of those in need and thereby communicate the love of God through His Son, Jesus Christ.

ACWR focuses most of its efforts in Jamaica, Haiti, India, Mexico, Croatia, Hungary, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia and Ukraine as well as within the United States. These missions include sending work teams locally and abroad for disaster and humanitarian relief, helping in church building, growth and support as well as supplying food products, medical supplies, clothing and household items through their various distribution centers for local and world distribution.

LIFESONG FOR ORPHANS

Bringing Joy and Purpose to Orphans. . .

Lifesong for Orphans is a Christian-centered ministry advocating care for orphans around the world.  Founded in 1993 by Gary Ringger of Gridley, Illinois, this nonprofit organization (member of the Evangelical Council For Financial Accountability) has all fundraising and administrative costs paid for by TMG Foundation, allowing 100% of their donations to go directly to caring for orphans. These care services are provided in adoption grants and interest-free loans and orphan and orphanage care.

All around the world an estimated 140-200 million orphans and abandoned children live on streets, in foster homes and in orphanages. They don't know what it truly means to "belong". Overwhelming numbers of these children left vulnerable are abused, starving and trafficked throughout the world. James 1:27 teaches, "Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, to visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction. . ."  Lifesong helps to answer this call of service to orphans by helping them become adopted into Christian Families through Adoption Grants and Interest-Free Loans. These programs help remove the financial roadblock of adoption which often prevents many families from taking this step of action. They also encourage the church family to aid in support and mentoring.

Many who live in orphanages have no hope of ever being adopted. Lifesong for Orphans has partnered with orphanages in Ukraine, Zambia and India in their Orphan Care program providing aid to nearly 2,000 orphans. Lifesong provides basic needs to these orphanages with financial support and mission teams, and hire national Christian staff members to provide biblical training and a safe environment. They also provide job skill training to prepare the children for their future role in society. As these young adults graduate into society, Lifesong helps provide transitional housing in Christian homes with the accountability of the church family offering them weekly Bible studies, counseling and transportation to church activities.

Some adopt, some care for, some give--Together we can make a difference in the lives of destitute children around the world and bring them to a life of JOY in the love of Christ. . . Lifesong.

SHARED HOPE INTERNATIONAL

Leading a worldwide effort to eradicate sexual slavery...one life at a time.

 

Shared Hope International (member of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability) is a Christian non-profit organization working worldwide to combat commercial sexual exploitation of women and children victims of sex trafficking and slavery. This is such a horrific topic that much of the mainstream is unaware of its reach. This is a topic that we don't wish to dwell on, but we must awake to its reality to be watchful and prayerful for those who are being victimized all around us. Since Shared Hope's beginning in 1998, it has gained a reputation for prompting legal and political reform against trafficking, working alongside the U.S. Department of State as well as governments, law enforcement and non governmental organizations in various foreign countries. They have been a strategic partner to organizations in some of these countries by funding Villages of Hope where the hands-on ministry of restoration  takes place for women and children who are victims of sex trafficking. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sex trafficking is stealing the precious lives of children

all around the world!

The United Nations reported that, “Over 12 million people worldwide are trafficked for forced labor or sexual exploitation." While slave labor trafficking is rampant worldwide, U.S. congress member Linda Smith, was rudely awakened to the horrors and injustice of sexual trafficking while on a tour in Bombay, India. "The hopeless faces of desperate women and children forced into prostitution" impelled her to take action, founding Shared Hope International.  The United States is primarily a destination-country for men, women, and children bought mainly from Mexico, Central America, Eastern Europe and Southeast Asia.  In addition to being a recipient of trafficking victims, the most recent data suggests that up to 300,000 American children are being commercially sexually exploited in the United States every year at the average age of 12, adding to the 3 billion dollar industry. More than 80% of America's commercially exploited children are first used at 11 years of age or younger. The increasing use of the internet has escalated victimization as figures show that more than 32 million individuals visit a porn site every month--1 out of 5 of these pornographic images depicts a child. The sex industry preys on women and children regardless of race or monetary status, capturing its victims in endless strategies from kidnapping, to being sold by family members to desperate attempts to obtain food and shelter.

 

SHI has served the world's most destitute to help free those women and children enslaved by this heinous crime, and are the first to thoroughly document the issue in the U.S. with the just released National Report on Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking.   They provide these victims with shelter, healthcare, education and vocational training opportunities with their three-pronged strategy--PREVENT, RESCUE and RESTORE. These efforts produce hope to lives shut up in darkness and fear. As quoted from their mission statement: "We will not give up. We will continue going into the darkness, rescuing and restoring young women and precious children--One life at a time."

 

We as Christians need to sound the call all across the churches of America and the world to fervently uphold these victims in prayer and take action to support these rescue ministries to make a difference TODAY!
